A New York girl with a degree in Communications/Journalism and 2 years post grad study as an Advertising Copywriter, you'd think I would be a writer in New York. Then how on earth did I wind up in the south as an artist? Well, I guess the Art Cupid finally shot straight this time and the paintbrush landed in my heart. He had been trying all my life and now success! I can deny my love for art and painting no longer! I still can't explain how I'm in the south but the weather is great y’all!
My paints and I (along with my husband, 2 boys, 2 dogs, 1 cat and occasional foster animals), are living happily ever after just outside of Atlanta, GA.
Nature and its elements paired with the female figure.
Without a conscious thought, these themes kept showing up in my work. Strong, nurturing and strangely beautiful women would keep presenting themselves on my canvases. I soon came to realize that many of my paintings are a facet of myself or a narrative in my head.
My subjects care for the animals, the trees, the situations and the environment, helping those who are unable to help themselves. So in tune with them they become what they need.
